and got stuck. erin pike is in wichita. how are you doing? >> reporter: very well. look, schools and universities have closed for the most part today. businesses were all closed yesterday around this area, but slowly opening back up today. the government got a delayed start to the day, but back open, too. and the roads are all open. the government is just urging drivers that if they're going to drive, they want to get all the though off the top of their cars so doesn't obstruct vision. but i have to tell you, a lot of people in kansas are really happy about all this snow because this is the third year of a really terrible drought here. and as you know, it's a big farming state, so a drought is a big problem. but it's bringing much needed moisture. the big concern, though, is with cattle ranchers. i spoke to a couple of them last night and their big concern is keeping cabs warm. it's cabbing season. these pictures are from frank harper. you can see there are probably cows in the snow, but they were also bringing these calves inside to warm them up. >> you don't normally see that.
